Video: Destiny: How 4.6 Million People Forged Bungie's Sci-Fi Epic

17w ago - Sony Content Producer Tom Wallis shared a Destiny video today on how 4.6 million people forged Bungie's Sci-Fi epic below.

To quote: Back in July 2014, the doors were thrown open to Bungie's sprawling universe - the [Register or Login to view links] beta had arrived.

For just one week the developers invited players to journey to the last safe city on Earth, and venture out into Old Russia...and over 4.6 million people got involved.

PlayStation.Blog caught up with three key developers from Bungie to talk about the significance of the beta, and how it has ultimately made the final version of Destiny that you'll play next month a better game.

"Let's make one thing clear," Jonty Barnes, creative director on Destiny tells us just four weeks before the game's official launch, "From the very beginning, the Destiny beta was a very big test for us - we put a huge investment into our online infrastructure and we needed to make sure it worked."

"We tested every part of the game, and each group at Bungie was able to analyze the data and take what they needed from it," adds Derek Carroll, a senior designer working primarily on the multiplayer aspects of the game.

23w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with the Destiny PlayStation 4 Beta with details below.

To quote: Today, PS4 and PS3 owners will get a chance to experience Bungie's galaxy-spanning epic [Register or Login to view links] for the first time.

Assuming the role of a newly revived Human, Awoken, or Exo, players will explore the ruins of a Russian Cosmodrome and battle hordes of formidable Fallen and feral Hive, all while earning new skills and collecting increasingly effective weapons and armor.

I had an early opportunity to play the Beta, and I've collected my initial notes below. While this post is by no means comprehensive, I hope it'll help get you up to speed before you hop in yourself. And if you're in the Beta, please share your tips, observations, and feedback in the comments below.

If you played or read about Destiny's Alpha last month, you might be wondering what's changed for the Beta. The answer: plenty! Perhaps most notably, the Beta fills in many narrative gaps with pre-rendered and in-engine cinematics, fleshing out more of the backstory and making this feel much more like a world I want to explore.

24w ago - Following up on their previous announcement, Bungie Community Manager DeeJ is back with a first look at the Destiny Collectors' Editions below.

To quote: It's Bungie Day. You want information. You want answers! You want the truth. Here goes...

If all you need from Destiny is a grand adventure that sends you to the stars in search of your own personal legend, we've got you more than covered. If you've played Bungie games in the past, you're not prepared for the scope and the scale of this next-gen shooter.

However! If you crave more ways to express your inner Guardian, we've also got you covered. Destiny is all about collecting loot, after all. The treasures you claim on your missions will enhance your experience.

They'll make you a unique warrior in a brave new world worthy of heroes. They'll deepen your understanding of the journey. This is as true for the Guardian that kicks alien ass it is for the player that drives them forward.

Be you a Guardian or a collector, there is a version of Destiny for you. Check 'em out.
